So I thought my Halloween card making was over for this year...

I just couldn't resist the Addicted to Stamps challenge.
I love to sponge skies and this one had a great sky to copy.
I stamped the image from Stampendous on to light grey card stock with Staz-On black ink.
I used my Misti for this as I always need to stamp more than once with a larger stamp like this.
I then took a piece of text weight paper and cut out a circle.
I placed the piece with the circle hole down on the card where I wanted the sun and sponged it with Distress ink fossilized amber.
Before removing the mask I gently around the sun sponged a little line of Distress ink rusty hinge.
I removed the mask and placed the cut circle over the sun and sponged rusty hinge over the complete background.
I trimmed the card top to the edges of the stamped image and sponged around the outside and some places in the middle with Distress ink black soot.
After that it was a matter of layering it onto black card stock and then onto a grey card stock base card.

I also found a couple more challenges that this card fit!
